Simply fantastic. I've never even heard of it until the other day. I went to my local Hollyweird Video and rented it. It is now in my top ten list of favorite movies.

I like how at the end when he's getting ready to fight that black guy and you think it's gonna be some long drawn-out sword-fight, but he just cuts his face off and that's the end of it. Definatly one of my favorite movies.

Are you PLAYING WITH ME, Cleric?

Don't mess with Christian Bale, when hes not a psycho dropping chainsaws on people, or fighting crime while masking his identity, he's packing a pair of Beretta 93Rs.

No kidding - it was so anti-climactic that it was the perfect climax.

Oh....you are gonna get a fit for not having this in the movie forums...

trust me...

Edit to say: I agree....really good movie. I've rented it 3 times. Should probably just have bought it!

Ah yes.....Gunkata...an essential part of GunFu

One of my favorite movies (among a list of dozens and perhaps hundreds). Unfortunately the local place doesn't have it.

What I hate is how people constantly compare it to The Matrix. "Oh, I didn't like it, it was just The Matrix: Rehashed." BS. Some of the fighting is similar, but if you judge the meaning of movies based on the fighting you are very shallow. The stories, and the moral, of this movie is completely different than The Matrix.

Wasn't bad. Besides the all-too-frequent firearms-ignorant moments, there were two main things that I can remember me that I thought were really stupid: the whole "gun karma" thing, and the fact that the secret service of the future has reverted back to swords. Stupid.

What is it with katanas and modern action movies? The only modern-era movie (i.e. not movies that take place hundreds of years ago WHEN PEOPLE STILL ACTUALLY USED THE THINGS) that used a katana and managed to do it in a cool/realistic way was Pulp Fiction. Everywhere else it's always being used where anyone with the IQ of a cinder block would be using a gun instead.

Actually, the katanas kind of made since. The clerics were taught to use the gun as an extention of the their arms--like every other weapon it taught to be used. Obviously, this would be hard to conceive for a beginner, so they started with something easier to visualize--wooden swords. We saw them practice with these in the movie. The katanas the clerics had were ceremonial--not actually used against their normally enemies.

The main bad guy's office body guards probably had swords because it would have made it harder for a spy who infiltrated his guard to assassinate him. Or, since they new the good guy was coming, didn't want to give him a chance to disarm a guard and shoot him from across the room. After all, the main bad guy and his cleric bodyguard both had guns.
